Were you able to attend the last workshop with Melinda Van Fleet?
In the midst of a pandemic, she has supported the community over and above. Staying on top of the ever changing virus information including determining what the best testing methods were, to providing and administering vaccinations to the entire community, not just our patients.
Her leadership style is strong. She is persistent and therefore accomplishes multitudes of duties.
Many things about her are inspiring. She really knows how to talk to people. All people.
Her actions during the pandemic provided resources (many times before you could receive them elsewhere locally) to keep our community safe.
I just think she's the greatest.
Betsy has been championing for our community by providing services for seniors through The JOY Center, with weekly activities and the potential to provide a senior center available to all. Her enthusiasm and leadership is an inspiration to us all.
Betsy empowers others to take charge and contribute. She enlists volunteers to teach classes for "Just Older Youth" and seeks out funding to provide training on computer devices for those who need help with their phones, laptops, iPads, etc.
Her attitude and inspiration inspires others to do more. Her selflessness is contagious and those who listen to her join her in making this senior center and senior services a reality.
She has given our Just Older Youth a place to gather, learn, exercise, and provide nutritional information. The facilities are open just one day a week, but she is driven to find a permanent home for the senior center where the services can be offered full time. This is something that the community needs and she is working hard to make it happen.
Her smile and determination are inspiring! She has been working on this for years and will not go away until we succeed. We need this in our community and should all help make it a reality.
Cynthia simply deserves to be recognized for the woman she is.
Cynthia leads with empathy and great care. She recognizes her weakness but does not give up. She leads by working hard but also knows how to play hard. Cynthia listens, takes advice into consideration, is honest and truly wants the best for her team, her clients and her family.
Her belief in empowering women and her belief in the good of the world are inspiring. She stands strong during difficult times and finds the strength to balance her personal and professional life. To be honest, I don't know how she does it, Go Cynthia!
Cynthia has a strong belief in empowering women. When you talk to her she has the capacity to empathise and she sure knows how to make lemonade out of lemons. Her smile is contagious and her worldly experience makes her different, in an grande way.
When I attend the UKBPW Coffee Chats she leads, her presence makes the difference. She turns a sad happening into a positive learning experience.
